The X-Files 4X06: Sanguinarium
SCULLY: October 31. #Halloween.
MULDER: On Samhain… the Fourth Witches’ Sabbath.

MillenniuM 3×07: The Curse of Frank Black
CROCELL: You know what #Halloween is all about? Halloween is believed to have been started by the ancient Druids who believed that on this evening, Saman, the lord of the dead, summoned evil spirits. For the Celts, it was the last evening of the year, and an especially propitious time for examining portents of the future. And the devils and witches were free to roam the earth. And on this night the spirits of the dead returned to visit past family and acquaintances from this life. Hmm? So, kid, for your trick, I want you to tell me… is it true? Is it possible that the, uh, dead can return? Just for, uh, five minutes.

On the occasion of the US elections tomorrow, here’s a topical article: X-Files, Trump and conspiracy theories: they’re all connected! – article by @[24351219578:274:Leonard Pitts].
Conspiracy theories have become both more name-dropped in the mainstream and become more vehemently anti-science since the 1990s. Hitting too close to home or yet one more source of disinformation to disprove — the sense of uneasiness that conspiracy theories generate today is perhaps one reason why Carter’s kitchen-sink conspiracy episodes in the revival were not as well received as in the past.

“Probably not. I think it is finished.” Gillian Anderson on an 11th season of @[362989843738755:274:The X-Files]. This is too big an announcement to come as a by-the-way remark at the end of an unrelated interview — I suppose to be confirmed (or denied?) in future interviews.

Petition to have an X-Files season 11! In light of recent developments and rumors of negotiations stalling, fans wasted no time to organize themselves. English version: http://wewantxfiles11.altervista.org/x-files-11-protest-campaign/

S11 of The X-Files will not happen. At least not before a long while. Anne Simon: “We just know that negotiations have ended. But to me, it doesn’t mean that something can’t change and they can start again. I do not know why negotiations ended. Probably no one wants to offend, in hopes that resumption is possible. My guess.” So long for the feelings right after S10 that treated S11 as a done deal.

X-Files brings a lot of money for FOX to completely let it go, so my guess is that we will certainly see more of X-Files later. S10 talks and negotiations started in 2013-2014 for a 2016 airing date, so we might not see S11 before 2019. By then I cannot imagine that FOX won’t have developed plans for a “Next Generation” type soft reboot of the series, independently from CC, GA and DD — sadly, this is the way franchises go. S11 might even be a TV-movie also serving as a backdoor pilot for the next generation. All possibilities exist. But CC should not take anything for granted, and plan for an ending.
